these other cities. new york may laurel, 2009. turnout, 11.4%. can you imagine? charlotte, north carolina, 2009, 4.3%. boston and baltimore, turnout in the low 20's. there are many more. you get the idea. september elections have a very low voter turnout. research has shown that the voters, in september elections, are primarily older, like me, more affluent, and predominantly white, like me. it reminds me of when you had to own property in order to vote. luckily, we have the chiu amendment, which is more likely to preserve turnout. having the original ranked- choice of voting in november makes sense. more people vote in november, which means more democracy. if there is no majority, you could have a runoff in december. when a candidate gets a majority in the november election, the cost of the second election is saved. do i have to stop? on a personal note, my father was involved in the civil rights struggle of the 50's and 60's. i grew up believing all americans are entitled to equal rights, including the right to vote. sometimes, you had to fight really hard to get those rights. this seem

's trial is set to begin september 4. >>> baltimore's public works department is trying to avert a potential disaster. they are asking people who get their water from the city to conserve as much as possible. public works crews have found weak spots in a 54-inch transmission main which carries water to howard and anne arundel counties. today workers are going to try to perform some tests to see what kind of repairs are needed and whether or not the entire main needs to be shut off. >>> there are some people in southwest virginia who still do not have power after the june 29 epic storm around here. to get relief some of them are going to jail. the county jail has been reopened so people can have air conditioning and a place to sleep. the building was closed a few months ago when a new regional jail opened. >>> second careers are so- called encore careers are becoming increasingly popular. more and more people are into this. this is a way to reimagine ourselves or a way to deal with careers that simply vanished during the great recession. approximately nine million people have foun
